Sergeant Lee Wrake

RAF veteran, landed on Omaha Beach on 6 June 1944

Sergeant Lee Wrake joined the RAF at the age of 19. On 6 June 1944 he landed on Omaha Beach, and after saving a man who was hit in the stomach, he himself was hit in the chest by shrapnel. Lee, now aged 94, recently turned to the RAF Benevolent Fund after he found simple tasks, like bathing, more and more difficult. We were able to install a wetroom and provide a riser recliner chair to make home life a little easier for this D-Day veteran.
